Shifter and Vampire True Mates story.

Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him.

But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep.

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf.

Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army.

Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master.

Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy.

Warning: This book is MM paranormal: If you DO NOT like alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their destined beloveds, then this may not be the novel for you. This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG.  No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.

About The Author

A.E. Via has been a best-selling author in the beautiful gay romance genre for five years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of gay lit for over fifteen years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple great new up and coming MM authors.

A.E. has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Virginia Wesleyan College that she used to start her own paralegal firm after she graduated in 2008. She spent five years preparing and filing bankruptcy petitions for struggling blue collar workers who couldn’t afford to file with a lawyer. It was a rewarding and satisfying career… but another path called to her. Writing.

A.E.’s writing embodies everything from hopelessly romantic to adventure, to scandalous. Her stories often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.

Now that she’s gotten over her 10 books published hump, she’s kind of known now for her hardcore, play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, she does like to push herself to step out of her comfort zone, exploring different tropes, but she won’t push herself into a whole other genre. She’s head over heels for gay romance and she has tons of more hot stories to tell.

eWoundedSoul_Annabelle.jpgBlurb

One night can change everything… 

Jesse Sykes has lived far longer than his youthful appearance suggests. Becoming a vampire after tragedy struck seemed the only option when his soul was shattered, after all he’s no stranger to having to hide what he is from the rest of the world. But eternal life isn’t without problems or heartache.

With a good job and great friends, Ian Moreton’s life would be almost perfect—if only he wasn’t in love with his best friend. His feelings are unrequited, and in an effort to move on, he takes a chance on a one-night stand with the handsome stranger he meets in a bar.

Jesse knows the risks of becoming attached to a human, but with neither of them looking for anything serious, where’s the harm? At least, that’s what Jesse thinks until his chemistry with Ian proves off the charts.

A second hook-up solidifies their connection…and brings Jesse to his senses. He scrambles to protect Ian from danger, but it’s already too late.

With Ian unwittingly drawn into a world he knows nothing about, events are set in motion that will change both of their lives forever, and it’s up to Jesse to steer them safely through it.

Prometheus steps out of the Underworld and into romance

45482837Prisoner of Shadows by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Greek Mythology is second only to Arthurian Legend in my list of loves and makes up the second largest section of my factual and historical library of books.

So, when Sam Burns started writing this series with W.M. Fawkes I was seriously happy and, with book two now finished, I have to say it’s been a two for two top quality five star reads for me.

This book goes a bit further down into mythology and steps into the Underworld in a surprisingly different place – with the Titan Prometheus – he who brought fire to mankind after crafting them from clay and so set them on the path of independence from the Gods.

Needless to say, Zeus had a toddler-style temper tantrum and chained Prometheus to a rock in Tartarus while an eagle eats his liver, only for it to grow back overnight -nice! And that’s where this story begins.

Hermes is trying to avoid his father after the events of book one, although this can be read as a standalone, and so he frees Prometheus in the hope Zeus will be distracted getting him back. Not all goes to plan however and Prometheus ends up crash landing in the path of New York’s head vampire cop Julian.

There then follows an absolute gem of a narrative which sees plotting and double-crossing in the vampire world having a parallel with the interference and actions of the Gods while Prometheus and Julian fall into an unlikely relationship.

I loved Julian, he’s all about duty and doing the right thing and he has an inbuilt need to look after people, and while Prometheus is the original rebel, after five thousand years underground, he’s like a newborn baby in the modern world and utterly out of place.

The passion between them is wonderfully spicy but it quite quickly turns into more as Julian becomes involved in Prometheus’ fight to stay out of Tartarus.

I also loved, as with book one, that the authors pulled in another lesser-known member of the Greek Pantheon – in this case Prometheus’ daughter Aidos and introduces my favourite Greek Goddess Nemesis.

***Spoiler***

There’s also a wonderful subversion of the vampire origins myth to here have them created by Artemis to be her eternal hunt, immortal warriors placed on Earth to protect mankind against the machinations of the Gods, and it works really well.

The pacing in this book is so good, I was still awake at 3am finishing it off (having started it at midnight) because I couldn’t find a spot at which I felt capable of leaving it overnight!

As with the first book, there’s humour, steamy scenes, romantic scenes and fast-moving dialogue which pulls the reader deep into the world of vampiric New York.

Next up is another hidden gem from Greek mythology Thanatos, the God of Death and Glaucus and I’m interested to see which version of his origins they’re going to use!

Book Blitz: The Blood Covenant by Emily Bex

The Blood Covenant | Emily Bex

The Medici Warrior Series #1

Publication date: April 22nd 2019

Genres: Adult, Paranormal, Romance

When he met her, he knew how it would end.

Shade Medici, a vampire warrior king and sole male heir to the dynasty, is expected to mate and produce an heir to secure the continuation of the Medici coven.

He’s waited over 500 years for the right mate, and when he meets Kate Reese, his attraction is more than primal – it’s merciless.

She’s also mortal.

Kate is fresh off a broken engagement and reluctant to open her heart, but her hesitations are no match for the unrelenting pursuits of the vampire King. Their passion for each other is searing… and not everyone is happy about it. Namely the ruling Council.

As they fight against deceit, treachery, and those who aim to see their love fail, Shade also struggles to control his impulses as Kate is immersed into his dark and dangerous world, but it’s imperative he prepare her for the changes that will be demanded of her should she choose to bind herself to him through the blood covenant.

All that scorches and glitters isn’t gold, and she quickly learns that falling in love with a vampire King comes at a hefty price.

It may just cost her everything.

Annabelle masters vampires as well as she does shifters

eWoundedSoul_Annabelle
Wounded Soul
by Annabelle Jacobs

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Annabelle wrote one of my favourite shifter series, the Regent’s Park Pack, now it looks like she’s just written one of my favourite vampire stories too.

I love paranormal, it’s top of my tree alongside fantasy and Sci-Fi, so finding great books which make your heart pound and your stomach clench is a joy.

In this, the bad guy really is bad, there are real consequences for mixing the paranormal world with the human one and there’s the start of a love which literally changes lives.

Ian and Jessie were wonderful characters, but there’s also a great supporting cast that I’m desperate to know more about.

Two strong female characters who buck the stereotypical trend for a best friend, a world which doesn’t know that potential killers walk the streets anonymously.

Annabelle’s Bristol is a city of secrets and, while this book still feels mostly British, it has an edge to it which lets the reader experience the trepidation Ian and Cate feel when they get the confirmation that vampires do exist.

I loved everything about this book. I haven’t hated a bad guy quite as much for ages!
